Summary: The first horseman could not be Christ, because when Christ brings peace to this earth, it is going to be permanent. This is a short-lived peace. The rider on the red horse takes all peace from the earth.

Rev.# 20~6:3-4 RIDER ON THE RED HORSE 8-29-09

We’re here in chapter 6: of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the 1st two verses are to do with the white horse and its rider and is telling about the Antichrist, as we have already said this man appears to come peaceable, he has signed an agreement with Israel that he will guarantee their safety, {DAN. 9:27} but his hidden agenda is to destroy Israel and he will later attempt to do so.

The first horseman could not be Christ, because when Christ brings peace to this earth, it is going to be permanent. This is a short-lived peace.

The peace, which the rider on the white horse brought to the earth, was temporary and counterfeit. The Antichrist presents himself as a ruler who brings peace to the world, but (Isa. 57:21). “There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked”

Lets red verses 1-4.—and lets be sure and notice that it’s the Lamb, the Lord Jesus Christ that is opening the seals, as He was the only One found worthy to do so back in chapter 5:

1And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, {a storm is on its way} one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

2And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

He did not earn this crown, it is given to him, he has deceived the people with his silver tong and lying promises.


3And when he {Jesus} had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.

4And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

This is at the mid point of the 7-year Tribulation, from this point on until the battle of Armageddon will be a time of blood shed and war. It is a series of battles until the end.

This is when Gog and Magog attacks Israel, we read about this battle in Ezekiel 38:-39.

The people involved in this battle are named there; Russia will head up this attack, they see Israel at rest and without walls of protection and Israel will appear to them as an easy prey, their coming to destroy Israel and to take a spoil and a prey, or so they think.

God is bringing them into the hills of Israel for destruction.


Let me say that THE TITLE “ROSH” is due to ro’sh being the common Hebrew word for "head" or "chief"

This name occurs in the prophecies against Gog in Ezek 38:2,3 and 39:1


Let us never forget, God has a divine plan, and in His plan is the enilation of sin and sinners, nothing can detain or alter the coarse of His plan, His plan is exactly on schedule today, its not early and its not late, He has every thing under His complete control, He is the Director of all happenings of the world, even the chaos we see here in this country and around the world, the economics must be in array in order that the “one world money, the one world government can come to pass”

Most of us are up set and worried about the seemingly catastrophe that this current Administration is bringing on our nation, and rightly so, people are protesting all over the nation at these town hall meetings while it appears that our leaders are unconcerned, as their off on their vacations.

Just remember that God is at the helm of this ship and its headed the way He has foreordained it to go.


At the mid point of the Tribulation, according to Ezekiel 38:-39 -5/6th of Russia and this coalition will be destroyed, and their not destroyed by any army of the world, their destroyed by Jehovah God Himself.

Israel has all down through the ages had to fight many battles, but she has not been destroyed, God has always preserved a remnant, Israel will be around forever while the godless nations are no longer here.


This false peace ends with the battle of Gog and Megog in Ezekiel 38-39. At the half waypoint of the 7 year tribulation. The last 3 ½ years is known as the great tribulation.


Listen as I read from Ezekiel 38:-39.

1And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2Son of man,*[EZEKIEL] set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
